$20 USD. I'm so excited. It looks great...

I'll take pictures of mine in a bit.


I....love you. I'll have to check out my local pier one imports before buying the foam ones.

As a stand it's great. I bought it once I picked it up. It's very thick, heavy glass. I don't worry about it tipping at all. Although you could always make a nice wood base for it to assure stability.

Also, glad I could help. I figured you guys would enjoy this. My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw them today.

Thanks for the idea.  The best $20 stand out there....

What about a life size skullbiggrin.gif

another good place to go for strange heads, like skulls is a "Spencer's"  Most malls in the state's have them.. they sell all sorts of weird stuff... beer hats, black light posters, big skulls, perverted t-shirts, lava lamps, body jewelry...

 

pier 1 also has giant Buddha heads

 

EDIT: wow! nevermind.. amazon has TONS of skulls, and probably other good stuff for cheap.. follow the skull link a few posts back

I've actually have had the Pier 1 glass head for nearly a year now and pretty much every headphone I've ever had has spent some time on it.

Picked up another one today for my future ortho purchase.

It's good to they've had these a while.  Just in case I want a second one down the road.

Sorry to resurrect, but just wanted to point out how much fun you can have with these heads (finally picked mine up from Pier 1) and a few dry erase markers. My head is rockin' a vampire face right now. Even if this wasn't such a fantastic stand I think I could derive at least $20's worth of artistic pleasure from one of these.

I love one of mine for for my D7000, but I don't think I can use my second one for the HE-500 unless I remove the cable.  Might use the second one as a vase if I can find something nice to hold it upside down. :D

Actually, I haven't mounted mine to a decent base yet, but before then I'm going to use it as a chalice for virgin pina coladas...

For your HE-500, if you raise it a bit with a base I think that might resolve your cable issue (sorry, not familiar with the exact headphone entry plug length)?

Was thinking about a base for it. Nice block of would wood look mighty nice.

Only if you want to.  The mass of it lends me to believe it isn't necessary...

I actually don't use my display head or headphone stand, due to the cable bending against the desk due to it not being tall enough. So I just carefully lay my HE-500's on my desk.

post #30 of 30

This is what I do with the HE 500. They're in the box for transport now though.

 

Gonna try to find a nice stand for them. If I grab  T join for my custom one it's actually tall enough to not worry about cable bending. 
 

 

Oh, and I know it's not necessary. They're more than heavy enough to not worry about it. I just want to. It'd look really good with maybe some Black Walnut at the base.
